Amino Liquid 2222

Description

Optimum Nutrition's Liquid Amino 2222 features a new amino acid delivery technology - the hydro-amino bond system. This revolutionary process enzymatically bonds branched chain, free-form and peptide bond amino acids together. Liquid Amino 2222 provides superior pharmaceutical grade essential and conditionally essential amino acids in their most absorbable form. The resulting high-performance amino energy ensures a positive nitrogen balance, where high levels of protein are maintained in the muscle promoting maximum muscle mass, strength and recovery.

Liquid Amino 2222 contains 18 non-essential and essential amino acids, including the valuable branched chain amino acids (BCAAs). Amino acids build the proteins used for the growth, repair, and maintenance of body tissues, including muscle. BCAAs and essential amino acids can only be derived from protein foods (such as red meat and dairy products) or dietary supplements.

Optimum Nutrition's formula also includes arginine and glutamine, nonessential amino acids that may become conditionally essential if demand for them exceeds the body's ability to produce them. Certain conditions, such as a vegan/vegetarian diet, prolonged exercise or physical stress can deplete arginine and glutamine levels, making supplementation necessary.

Taking a potent liquid amino supplement such as Optimum Nutrition's Liquid Amino 2222 delivers the nutrition you need to maximally build muscle and strength and improve recovery.


Pros

A great advantage of Liquid Amino 2222 is its cutting-edge, concentrated Liquid Delivery System. The liquid hydro-amino bond system is quickly and easily assimilated into the body, for rapid absorption of high-performance amino energy. Liquid Amino 2222 ensures total protein utilization to promote maximum muscle growth, strength and recovery.

Studies have found that the nutrients in Liquid Amino 2222 have numerous benefits including:

  • Builds maximum muscle mass
  • Enhances strength
  • Improves muscle recovery following intense training

Cons

Few side effects have been reported with the short-term use of amino acids. However, mega-dosing amino acids over an extended period of time may result in potential side effects, such as causing excess nitrogen to be excreted as urea in urine. The excess nitrogen has been linked with reduced kidney function.

People with ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), depression, Reye's Syndrome, kidney or liver disease should not supplement with amino acids without consulting a physician.

Be aware that some drugs may interact with the nutrients in Liquid Amino 2222 including:

  • Chemotherapy
  • Cisplatin
  • Cyclophosphamide
  • Docetaxel
  • Fluorouracil
  • Methotrexate
  • Paclitaxel

Is it for you?

Athletes, bodybuilders and exercise enthusiasts looking to build muscle and strength and improve recovery would benefit from Optimum Nutrition's advanced amino acid delivery technology. Vegans/vegetarians would also benefit from Liquid Amino 2222 supplementation. However, people with ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), depression, Reye's Syndrome, kidney or liver disease should not supplement with amino acids without consulting a physician.


Dosage and Directions

Take 4 tablespoons before each meal and again before and after training. Amino acids should be taken on an empty stomach so that they won't compete for assimilation with amino acids present in the food you are eating. Take amino acids 45 minutes before a meal and immediately before and following a workout. Refrigerate after opening.
